Delaying it the day before it was supposed to launch, and yet they announced the rescue like a week ago. How did they not see this coming sooner? Anyways, hope the "delay" is no more than a couple weeks and not months.

Have the spin-offs only been announced for digital release?

Kodansha Comics announced on Monday that it is delaying the digital releases of Hiroyuki Takei's Shaman King manga and four Shaman King spinoff manga: Shaman King: Zero, Shaman King Flowers, Shaman King: Super Star, and Shaman King: Red Crimson. The company stated that it is delaying the main series "to give Shaman King the production quality it deserves and its fans the best manga experience."


Pity they didn't do this with Initial D as well instead of crapping out the terrible Tokyopop version for the previously released volumes.

As of now, yeah. Only the original series is getting the omnibus print run next year.

This is quite a shame since a lot of fans were getting hyped for the official English release. Hopefully Kodansha fixes this fast because it's extra weird to pull a series release date even though they've had months to prepare in advance for any proofreading mistakes.
